1976 Jaguar XJ6 Additional Info:

This car started out as a 44,000 miles chassis and had the complete interior removed to allow both complete floor pans and front jacking points replaced along with minor other areas where rust was noted. The build continued with compete removal of the drivetrain, suspensions, fuel tanks, and HVAC unit. A 1986, 56,000 mile Series 3 donor XJ6 was purchased to provide the new fuel injected drivetrain for the Coupe. The engine was removed from the donor and transplanted into the Coupe. The existing transmission from the XJ6C was used and had new seals installed while it was removed. With the new drivetrain installed, the oil cooler, radiator, A/C components along with all electrics and ancillaries were located in the engine bay as per later XJ specs. The Series 3 front sub-frame was installed into the XJ6C. The original rear suspension from the Coupe was used and has the 3:54 ratio differential. New fuel tanks and sender units were installed along with custom fuel lines and the complete fuel injection system and partial wiring harness from the donor car to make the Coupe fuel injected. Dual electric fans, custom exhaust complete with headers, a custom cold air intake utilizing a K&N filter inside the donor car’s air filter housing were all incorporated. The donor car also provided the climate control for the Coupe, which was completely rebuilt prior to install and has the upgraded amplifier unit and a new A/C compressor. The seats were re-dyed as the leather and stitching is good. New sound deadener, Wilton wool carpets, and the donor car’s dash top and dash wood were installed. The original gauges were retained. The Series 3 power mirrors were installed. An aftermarket stereo was also added along with an electric antenna. The car was then subject to a glass out re-spray in black cherry that saw the addition of an XJ-S Growler medallion in place of the traditional leaper. The black vinyl top was left in place.
